Originalausgabe des dritten Künstlerbuchs von Richard Long. – "'SOUTH AMERICA' was made on the first big overseas journey Hamish Fulton and I made together. We landed in La Paz and travelled in Bolivia, Peru and Chile for almost two months. I had pre-conceived the idea for a book, but not the particular places or images it might contain. We travelled by hitch-hiking cars and communal trucks, on buses, on trains, by taxi, and by walking and climbing. We had a free and adaptable itinerary, often changing our plans on impulse or by circumstance. This fitted the general idea for the book, so that the great variety of places for the drawings occurred naturally, by chance, along the way. It is a book about movement, time, space, luck and opportunism. I had not seen the moon 'upside down' before. The positive/negative printing of the drawings comes from the characteristic of Indian weaving, and the cover drawing was influenced also by the traditional patterns of the blankets etc. we saw in the local markets." – (Richard Long, Bristol, March 6, 2012). – Buchblock leicht wellig, Rücken unten mit handschriftl. Künstlernamen, oben minimal verletzt, der äussere Rand der schwarzen Tafel "Spiral" abgelöst und auf der gegenüberliegenden weissen Seite aufgepresst.
